Putting up a link that shows the superiority of the Victory Suspension over a Harley Davidson is stirring trouble???

They once said you meet the nicest people on a Honda.
You Sir, totally proved that stereotype.
I didnt log on to make friends nor enemies.
I logged on so I can make a better educated purchase with My hard earned American dollars.
Next time, I will avoid you like a minefield.

Welcome Wangosho! You will have to excuse my friend VJ... He rides a Vision and there was a dude on that thread bashing the Vision. What kind of bikes are you looking at? You truly meet the nicest people on all kinds of motorcycles.

C,mon VJ let the man be. This thread is interweb gold I'm telling you.

Bunch of Miata fans busting Harley for safety. RIOT! Pot... meet kettle.
I imagine if it's got two wheels and saddlebags it's a Harley to them like if it's got four wheels, a rag top and it's a shoebox, Pop calls it a Miata.

I dunno if I would consider me "the nicest people" but thanks for the link. One of them Mazdroids linked to the Landover site and that there is a site I haven't thought of in years. Still tearing it up (yes Virginia, it's not for real.)

We just keep moving

We mostly go where we have to go

Don't let VJ ruffle your feathers. Every family has "that uncle".

It is the interweb, so you'll get enough opinions for and against to sink a ship, along with "It" is the best/worst in the world.
I get tired of Vic trying to buck HD. Step out on your own Victory. You aren't going to touch HD's fan base no matter what you build. Be your own brand/circle/advocate. Vic builds a nice bike, with good qualities, but falls well short of HD in a lot of categories. For that matter,they fall short in comparison to Honda and Yamaha in many ways.

For the ride of a Vic, you'd really be hard pressed to top it. Suspension travel is only a small part of it. Handling and agility are also very good to superb. Sounds like you are doing your research, so lurk away, or step up and ask. The water is fine and the company is pretty good. All kinds of riding styles and regions to pull info from.

VJ...go stand in the corner 'til I say you can leave. Wangosho's link was in strong praise of our beloved Victorys at the expense of the bar and shield bikes. And well written to boot.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
